Republican Senate Hopeful Wants To Give Kool Aid And KFC To Black Voters
A GOP Senate hopeful in New York State has made headlines after telling NBC 4 New York’s I-Team he was planning to give out “Kool Aid, KFC and watermelons” at a campaign rally in Harlem. Yes, in real life.
Jon Girodes, sent this racially offensive email to supporters about the event:
“Ps I’m hosting an event in Harlem which will be in front of the state building in a few weeks. We will [donate] Kool Aid, KFC and watermelons to the public on 125th street in Harlem. Please join us to help the community,” he wrote.
The ignorant candidate who is running for the 30th District senate seat and had the audacity to use a photo of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on his campaign site, believes there is nothing wrong with the offering:
“What I think is anyone who gives free food to people is doing them a favor,” Girodes told the I-Team. “Get a bunch of people who say it’s offensive and let me go into their neighborhood and give it out for free and see if they take it.”
While Girodes offered no further details of his planned event, it was met with outrage in Harlem.
What the entire hell!?
